+ - Effective way to corrupt gathered personal info? 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "I use Facebook, I used Myspace, and when I was much younger I didn't think twice about putting my name/address/phone numbers out on the web. So I know there is already a significant amount of data on me already gathered. My question is — for me people like me, would supplying false information on publicly accessible websites effectively mess up data about me?

For example, say I create several accounts on several social networking sites with my correct full name and a couple other correct details (alternating the correct details), but completely fudge many others. I set these accounts to fully open and I log in every few months and change a detail here and there.

Over time would this be helpful in obscuring my identity?"
